Disturbing surveillance video from New York City shows a young man, without warning, pushing over a 92-year-old woman in broad daylight, her head narrowly missing a fire hydrant and she fell hard to the sidewalk.


The incident occurred on Third Avenue near East 16th Street in the Gramercy Park neighborhood at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday, the New York Post reports.

The attacker walked away nonchalantly after knocking the elderly woman down, at one point staring back at her as he continued walking.

The young attacker is black and the elderly victim is white. She is reported to be injured but expected to recover. It is not clear at this time what the motive was for the attack.
